THE CHALLENGE: The Event will raise money for the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association, the chapter of US Lacrosse responsible for promoting the growth and development of the game in Eastern Pennsylvania. (http://www.palacrosse.com/) The PLA provides programs/services to members of the lacrosse community, including clinics for coaches/officials, and makes grant funding and technical expertise available to new programs. The PLA has provided over $300,000 to help underwrite lacrosse initiatives in the region (including efforts to grow the game in the City Philadelphia). In connection with the Event, the PLA is “challenging” participating teams to solicit and identify a sponsor to make a contribution to support the work of the PLA (recommended contribution of $200, though any greater or lesser amount would be appreciated). Each team and its Challenge Partner will be recognized in press releases, on the PLA website and on other lacrosse websites such as Phillylacrosse.com.
If teams from other US Lacrosse chapters take part, the PLA will earmark their Challenge Partner proceeds to their local chapter! the PLA also is “challenging” teams to collect used lacrosse sticks, which can be donated at the Event, restrung and ultimately recycled for donation and used to promote lacrosse in the City of Philadelphia. The PLA has partnered with HEADstrong Foundation, which is donating its distinctive lime green mesh, in connection with this “HEADstrong” initiative.
The NCAA will donate a portion of the Championship Weekend ticket proceeds generated through the promotion to the PLA to support youth lacrosse.
